I love Shelby Nichols! This has fast become a favorite series and so far there hasn’t been a book yet that I haven’t liked!
What I thought of this book.
In Secrets That Kill Shelby has been talked into delivering an associate in Orlando while her and her family are on vacation. If you have read any of these stories then you know nothing ever goes as planned for poor Shelby. The guy talks her into going some place with him and then things pretty much spiral out of control after that.
What I really liked about this book is we get a little more incite into Ramos and see a bit of his softer side. There is also a chemistry building between Ramos and Shelby that they know can’t not be touched as she is married. I think it’s a bit more realistic having Shelby think Ramos is hot even though she is married..she is married not dead. Ramos is my favorite character besides Shelby so this one for me was a great one because it had mostly those two characters in it the whole time. Ramos would do just about anything for Shelby and that keeps her safe.
I also think she has the best husband ever cause he is really understanding of all her mishaps. He doesn’t like it that much but what can she do, tell a mob boss no, not going to do that for you. I loved when he talked to Ramos making sure he knew that he better make sure his wife came back in one piece. Her husband Chris is a lawyer, and Ramos is a mob bosses bodyguard, in my head the two types going against each other makes me laugh. I wonder some times if Chris would be so brave if talking face to face with Ramos. 🙂
Colleen Helme does a great job with these novels and I thought Lie or Die was my favorite but now I am not so sure and I think this one might be it! 🙂 If you are into fun cozy type mysteries then you really should try this series as they are just great! 🙂 I also think they are super fun on audio!
By now Wendy Tremont King is Shelby Nichols and she does a fantastic job!
